It’s so nice to have blogger friends in temperate climes, because I get to see images of your Spring long before ours starts!
And for all of us we see plants that we can’t grow in our parts of the world too
I love them! 🙂
Very tardy this year though!
What a welcome sight. I have some Ericsmithii hybrids out but Helleborus orientalis is taking its time.
I do have ericsmithii Winter Moonbeam in full bloom but I only bought it a fortnight ago so I am not counting that (first plant purchase of 2017)!
How exciting. We have buds popping up here. It won’t be long.
Facinating to watch their progess, even day by day, isn’t it?
So lovely! Hellebores quickly becoming one of my favorites, along with galanthus.

And the hellebores are only just appearing here, so there are many more to follow!
Pure envy on my part! I’ve got hellebore foliage but there’s no sign of any flowers.
This one took me by surprise, Kris, as buds on the others are barely above ground yet. Hope yours make you happy soon
Love these wonderful winter bloomers. My Hellebore ‘Shooting Star’ are blooming now as well. Your captures are beautiful!
Thanks Lee – it’s lovely when their flowers are so perfect and unsullied by weather or pests
Lovely aren’t they? So yours are doubles. Such a shame they hold their heads down.
I have many singles and other doubles too, but this is the first. The stems usually do get taller in time and show off their flowers better
Yes, mine are a little taller now, but goodness knows if there will be anything left after the winds we are experiencing tonight!
A ray of hope!
I am still waiting for my first one, its all that balmy weather you have up there Cathy!
😉 The garden is quite sheltered here – but this really is the first one and the others are still some way behind
One of the most beautiful of the Harvington hellebores. Indeed I have featured it on my own blog. My own is well budded up but not actually in flower yet due to my changing position to the north facing front entrance. Last year it was in spectacular flower like your own.
And I am intrigued that mine has flowered before any of the others – and it is north facing too
